Blush is a fast way to give your complexion a little (or big) boost. It wakes up your face and makes you look like the picture of health. And the best part? It takes under 8 seconds to apply, and you’re out the door.
Everyday Minerals Blush is hands down my favorite blush ever. Why? It contains very few ingredients (which means no extra chemicals and fillers), comes in a wide variety of colors and finishes, and doesn’t contain Bismuth Oxychloride (which I’m allergic to in face and eye products).

Everyday Minerals Blush Review
Up until I discovered them a few years ago, I thought that I’d never be able to wear blush. In elementary school all the way up to my university hay days, I tried powder blushes, stick blushes, cream blushes, and liquid blushes. All of them irritated my cheeks!
I was wary to try Everyday Minerals blush, but on their site, I saw that they listed the few ingredients each blush contained, so I gave it a shot. I’m so glad I did! These are the only blushes to date that I’ve been able to wear – mainly because they don’t contain Bismuth Oxychloride (which also tends to be in lots of mineral makeup, regular eye shadows, and numerous blushes)!
What I love most about Everyday Minerals blushes is that a little goes a long way – they’re highly pigmented, so be careful! In my swatches above, I really laid the product on heavy so you could see the color better. For any of these, you can totally sheer it out or build it up to how pigmented you want it.
Tap the powder lightly from the sifter into the inside of the lid to dispense a small amount. Then, I recommend using a ‘skunk brush’ or stippling brush like the MAC 187 or the Sigma F50 Brush (formerly called the Sigma SS187). Using this kind of brush allows you to avoid applying too much product and looking like you’re Bozo’s sidekick in the traveling circus.
The mineral blushes by Everyday Minerals feel so light on your skin like you’re not wearing it. And I love their ever-expanding range of colors! What’s also nice is that there are different finishes available so you can achieve the look you’re after:
- Matte – No shine
- Sheen – Subtly catches the light
- Shimmer – Dramatic & sparkly
I recommend the Everyday Minerals matte and sheen blushes for day-to-day, and they’re the finishes I prefer to wear. The shimmer blushes are probably more suitable for the evening and a festive night out or for those who have drier skin and want some shine.
Here are my descriptions of the Everyday Minerals blushes I swatched:
- Girl’s Day – Autumnal orange (Warning: Watch for glitter fallout!)
- Raspberry Sherbet – Hint of purple (Warning: Watch for glitter fallout!)
- Time Share – Dusty mauve
- Pink Ribbon – Muted Barbie pink
- New Shoes – Cranberry with pink undertones
- Walkee Talkee – Coral pink
- Salon Fun – Medium rose pink
- Sprung! – Orangey pink
These Everyday Mineral blushes are also multi-purpose because you can totally use them as eye shadows, too! Some of these would look killer to warm/darken up the crease in an eye look.
Also, just a tip I wanted to post. The sticker covering the sifter holes on the sample size containers can be really difficult to peel off with your nails. And if you have a manicure, you won’t want to ruin it by doing this. The fastest way I’ve found is to use the tip of a pair of scissors to pick at the sticker. Once a little lifts up, you can pull it off with your fingers easily. I wish Everyday Minerals put a pull-tab for the sticker like they do with the big-sized blushes.
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
The wide variety of colors and 3 different finishes ensure that you find the perfect Everyday Minerals blush for you. I recommend this for everyone, but especially for those who have sensitive skin or cosmetic allergies. These are as natural as it gets, and you won’t have to rob the bank to get that healthy glow.
Do you wear blush? Are you into corals, pinks, peaches, or reds?
